KVIA has announced plans to produce a 9:00 p.m. news to air on its sister station CW affiliate KVIA-DT2.
The weekday newscast will air on the El Paso ABC affiliate’s digital subchannel 7.2 and will be anchored by Stephanie Valle and meteorologist Karla Huelga.
“Since the El Paso/Las Cruces CW launched in 2007, we’ve wanted to provide the station’s viewers with news and weather,” said KVIA general manager Kevin Lovell. “Now that the station is well established, we’re ready to use ABC7’s resources to bring CW viewers a newscast that’s an hour earlier than our ABC7 10 p.m. newscast.”
The station also announced weekend morning anchor Denise Olivas will replace Valle as co-anchor of the noon news with Bob Harp. Olivas will also begin reporting for the weekday morning show, “Good Morning El Paso.”
The first newscast on the CW will air Monday, March 25.
